A Week In Film #393: Easy days

Quicksand title screen
Quicksand
Michael Keaton as a mild-mannered bank investigator caught up in a Russian mob money scandal in France. Michael Caine undeservedly shares top billing as a washed-up action star, Rade Serbedzija is a scary gangster, Kathleen Wilhoite has all too few scenes as a colourful and swear PA. Hardly John Mackenzie’s finest hour after career highlights like A Sense Of Freedom and The Long Good Friday, but watchable enough.

Krigen title screen
Krigen AKA A War
Tobias Lindholm’s follow up to A Hijacking, this time with his favoured leading actor Pilou Asbæk as a Danish army officer embroiled in a war crimes scandal after a troubled tour in Afghanistan. Strong drama.
